SAFETY & ENVIRONMENT

Yes, the majority of the research on hypochlorous acid has been for using hypochlorous acid directly on food. The FDA Food Contact Notification 1811 allows for hypochlorous acid to be used on raw or processed fruits & vegetables, fish & seafood, meat, poultry and shell eggs at up to 60 ppm.

Hypochlorous acid is a powerful oxidant and will cause corrosion if left exposed for extended periods of time to brass, copper, iron, or lower quality steel. Stainless steel can corrode as well if submersed in high concentrations of hypochlorous acid (>200 ppm) for extended periods of time.

Hypochlorous acid does not change the taste or smell of food when used at FDA cleared concentrations.

Hypochlorous acid is much less aggressive on fabrics than peroxide or chlorine bleach. Although hypochlorous acid usually does not cause bleaching or discoloration, some lower quality dyes may bleed when exposed to hypochlorous acid.

The FDA clearance of a food contact substance requires that it not leave behind any harmful residues. Hypochlorous is cleared for use at up to 60 ppm.

Hypochlorous acid is non-toxic and non-hazardous. Unlike most chemical sanitizers, hypochlorous acid is non-irritant to eyes, skin, and the respiratory tract. Even if it were ingested by accident, it causes no harm.

Yes, hypochlorous acid is 100% safe and non-irritant. It is safe enough to be used on personal items such as toothbrushes, baby pacifiers, and toys for pets.
